Are you looking to expand or renovate your existing commercial building? Perhaps you wish to better serve your customers or increase your list of provided products and services. Whatever the reason, your expansion must satisfy seemingly countless building codes to ensure a safe, functional building. Fire safety is just one concern on a long list of requirements.
The old-fashioned method of referencing blueprints and building plans isn’t good enough today. 3D laser scanning from Kauffman Co. is the technology you need to bring the vision of your newly expanded building to life.
Laser scanning is such a simple process that often one man can handle the task alone! A laser scanner is set up on a tripod and left to scan a 360-degree view of its surroundings. Several repositionings later, the scanner has seamlessly stitched together a complete image of your building. Depending on the size and scope of the project, 3D laser scanning may take only a few hours or up to a few days.
Once the process is complete, a 3D modeling program allows you to explore your building in a detailed, virtual world. The digital image can be manipulated and changed, all while keeping an original version untouched for comparison purposes. By adding fire protection components to the 3D model – from fire sprinklers to alarms to suppression systems – technicians know precisely where to install them in real life when the time comes.
Consider the traditional method of planning for a building renovation or expansion. A team would walk through and take manual measurements of your building. These, combined with construction drawings, would provide the basis for redesigning and installing your new fire protection system and other behind-the-scenes building components. This time-consuming, prone-to-error method is far inferior to 3D laser scanning. Just consider the benefits:
Regardless of why you need to know your building’s precise dimensions, 3D laser scanning is the best method available. Have your building measured on a tight deadline and stay within budget by using 3D laser scanning. To learn more, or to schedule services in the Houston area, please contact Kauffman Co. today.
